October 2014 - Volume XXXX Number 8  

“Faith is not a private matter, a completely individualistic notion or a personal opinion: it comes from hearing, and it is meant to find expression in words and to be proclaimed. For “how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a preacher?”
(Rom 10:14).

  Pope Francis, Lumen Fidei, 22

A New Pentecost for
                the New Evangelization

by Tammie Stevens

      I love the writings of Pope Paul VI.  A quote that often inspires me is “Evangelization will never be possible without the action of the Holy Spirit” (Evangelii Nuntiandi, 75).  I think this is why I love being involved with Catholic Charismatic Renewal, because the purpose of the Renewal is that people would come into a personal relationship with Jesus, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to the Glory of God the Father!  It is this relationship that empowers us for evangelization.  What an exciting mission!

      Reading the documents of the Church and our recent Church history, phrases like “the new evangelization” and “new Pentecost” will be familiar.  Pope John XXIII opened the Vatican II Council with this prayer: “O Divine Spirit, renew your wonders in this our day as by a new Pentecost.”    Read More...

From Sue's Desk

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

      What a beautiful summer we have had. By the time you read this I will have celebrated my one-year anniversary at WWCCR. I have learned so much and have so much more to learn. My fondest memories are of each Healing Mass, Dwelling Place Healing Nights, and the Pentecost Celebration. Any time I can be with you, is my joy! Thank you for your prayers for myself and WWCCR. They are more precious than gold.

      As we approach 2015 we have our eyes fixed on Jesus and the scripture from Ephesians 4:12. “Equip the holy ones for the ministry, for the building up of the kingdom of God.”    Read More... 

Pope Francis Speaks to the Renewal

On June 1, 2014 Pope Francis addressed the Italian Renewal in the Spirit at the 37th Annual Convocation, organized with the cooperation of ICCRS and the Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities.  Here is an excerpt from Pope Francis' address:

This is your path: evangelization, spiritual ecumenism, caring for the poor and needy, and welcoming the marginalized. And all of it is based on worship! The foundation of the renewal is worshiping God!

They asked me to tell you what the Pope expects of you.

The first thing is conversion to the love of Jesus which changes our lives and makes each Christian a witness to God’s love.  Read more...
